In 2023, she released her debut album Enerhomor, based on the sounds of electricity (electricity meters, sounds of power stations and electricity transformers), which was named among the best albums 2023 in the leading Ukrainian webzine Slukh and the international magazine A Closer Listen. Later that year, she released the first Ukrainian electronic suite, Snovyda Suite No. 1, Op. 4, an experiment with sound reception during different stages of the sleep cycle. ummsbiaus is not only about music: it’s about the idea of combining all possible forms of art to evoke feelings on different levels of perception.

Her latest project is an experimental folk album in collaboration with Ukrainian artist Difference Machine, titled “Halfway Between the Origin and the Edge”. It was created on the basis of a 2-hour recording session with Ukrainian folk musician and military medic Eduard Drach. This album looks at the coexistence of modern and archaic traits of Ukrainian traditional music. The main idea of this collaborative project is to think about the way samples of traditional instruments can be re-worked with modern tools to create a unique sound.
